Diwali Celebrations

30 October 2014

 

Diwali, the Festival of Lights, is an ancient Hindu festival celebrated annually in autumn. The festival spiritually signifies the victory of light over darkness, knowledge over ignorance, good over evil, and hope over despair.

At RCSI, Diwali, was hosted by PIBS (Pakistan-India-Bangladesh-SriLanka), a newly formed Student Society.

A large number of staff and students turned up on the night of 24 October to enjoy the colourful costumes, talented dancers, singers and other performers. It was truly a 'Festival of Highlights'!

Well done to PIBS for a fantastic event, which certainly illumintated a dark October evening.
